Re: mark from victoria bc hello!
Ottawa has it on their web site if you want to look but if your frame doesn't have a serial number plate placed there by a maker recognized by the government it can't be registered.
You can apply for a vin # to be assigned to your bike but when they see a bike frame you probably be turned down.
No registering of a bicycle with a internal combustion motor since the frame isn't made to withstand the forces of the engine. That's what I was told.
The chap that owns Blow By You Motor Bikes, Terry Blow lives here in Surrey and after getting a bike built to meet all the requirements that were needed to pass he was turned down because it was a bicycle frame.
Wish you all the best but after you have spent your money you will be buying an electric motor to be legal.
